BOSTON (CBS) – Should you elope and throw a great party after the fact? But what if your mom has had her heart on seeing you walk down the aisle, what can you do then to cut costs?

" Let’s start at the very beginning with an engagement ring. Do you need one? Average cost is over $5,000. That’s a lot of money for something that sparkles and needs to be taken off when you make meat loaf! Makes a great future anniversary gift! And if you get one make sure it is insured properly.

The most expensive item for a wedding is the venue and reception. What can you do to keep food, alcohol and the venue costs down? A wedding at home? In your parent’s garden? The beach at sunset? An afternoon wedding and serve finger foods. Serve only wine and beer or just a wine punch.
